-- the world of nation-state, those independent units that are truly sovereign and do not depend or take orders from anywhere else. the west can no longer do what it assumed it could do for its citizens. it needs to reach out for help. so you have got this system living in an uneasy coexistence with this globalize the world, and you say, "are we losing power?" though the very nature of power is different now than it used to be. you all in your textbooks say, cassette and these are the elements of national power -- economy, this, that, and the other" -- "these are the elements of national power -- economy, this, that, and the other," but it is much more complicated now. >> i would add that the concept of what makes up national security has changed. it is a much broader field now. you have to deal with economic issues. you have to deal with cybersecurity. you have to deal with a world that is largely asymmetric. as we play it back on the 20th century, which was not that long ago, you almost yearn for the ordered ways of the 20th century. we had essentially a bipolar world, two different ideologie

for the united states to act, and they have a right to defend itself. and some say it could happen before the election. but the attempts to get president obama to establish red lines failed. and in his efforts to have a meeting with president obama in new york next week have also so far not come to fruition, jamie. >> jamie: so far, that is true. rick, great reporting this week, thank you. >> kelly: and there's no letup in the anti-american protests we have been talking about, that is sweeping throughout the muslim world. this is the scene we're looki i and police firing tear gas to disperse hundreds of stone throwing protesters there. reports of dozens injured and arrested and several cars burned. after days of protests, what will it look like to calm or what will it take to calm the muslim world? joining me live right now, stuart holiday, ambassador to the u.n. for special political affairs and the president of the meridian center and always good to have you join us on the program, and tell us about exactly what's going on in the middle east right now. how do you see american foreign po

. this is highest judicial office in the united states, farce enforcement. you have the head of the criminal division who is let off the hook in this to the attorney general still going to be in office who is responsible. someone has to be responsible and accountable. i think that is all we're asking for. when a u.s. agent is killed and this kind of money, waetd taxpayer money takes place. >> gregg: the president says his predecessor is responsible. in fact on thursday. president obama told the uni vision audience, i'm sure you saw this -- i'll quote him here. fast and furious was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. congressman, that is utterly untrue, is it not? >> i think that is shameful for the president to say that. yes, there was a fast and furious program before but it was properly operated. you didn't have people killed or weapons gone astray like this. >> gregg: and it stopped in 2007 two years before fast and furious begin. >> and it was a successful program. i have once chaired the criminal drug policy subcommittee in congress and we have done these
want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> mitt romney's getting ready to climb back aboard his campaign bus and hit the road with a retooled strategy. between now and next month, presidential debates, he'll be making more frequent public appearances, highlighting his proposals to try to revive the u.s. economy. however, many republica are grumbling that romney's campaign itself is in dire need of a revival, especially after a secretly recorded complaints that the 47% of voters who support the president are dependent on the government. >> when you express an attitude that half the country considers itselves victims, that somehow they want to be dependent on government, my thinking is, maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> this is a campaign about the 100%. i've demonstrated my capacity to help the 100%. >> after listening to a week's worth of criticism of her husband, especially from other republicans, romney's wife, ann, has had enough. >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it? get in the ring. it
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
, everyone. there are nearly 40 of our jobs bills sitting in the united states senate. all part of our plan for american job creators that we have been working on all year. these bills cut red tape, remove government barriers that make it harder for small businesses to hire new workers. there are bills to address our debt, expand american energy production and approved projects like the keystone pipeline. there are bills that stop the present's tax hike and fix the tax code. to bring more jobs home from overseas. these are good ideas, all passed with bipartisan support here in the house. president obama will not work with us to find common ground or urged senate democrats to take action. why? it is because democrats have failed to lead. they failed to lead on jobs. the unemployment rate has been over 8% for 43 consecutive months. they failed to lead on energy. everything from gasoline prices to groceries will cost more today. the president's defense suppression -- sequestration threatens our national security and his tax hikes threatens some 700,000 jobs and our country. while democrats hav
a campaign tied to the incumbent president of the united states. >> joining me now in our war room, a former pennsylvania congressman, joe sestak and bill clinton and romney surrogate and george w. bush white house aide. good afternoon to you. congressman sestak, let me start from you. i want to play another clip of that "60 minutes" interview set to air tomorrow night when he was asked about the campaign and the video 47%. >> that's not the campaign. that was me. i have a very effective campaign, doing a very good job. >> peggy nounen writing in the "wall street journal," i called it in competecompetent, i was b polite but really meant rolling collam ca l ca lamty. >> what is it you're trying to say? >> mitt romney is the campaign. you represent that ship and how well it does. he's made these gaffes on his own both about the egyptian embassy and 47% of americans he spoke about that he said didn't have personal responsibility. i really truly believe mitt romney is a decent man. but he's twice shown by these gaffes, if that's the word you want to use, as commander in chief, is he willing to b
weather only to find out that the united states senate under democrat control will not even bring a budget plan to the senate floor. people should know the republican led house on the other hand, met its obligations, most significantly, it passed a budget to rescue america from debt crisis. >> alabama senator jeff sessions there. we have each side blaming the other. who do you think really gets the blame here? sn>> he's right the republicans accomplished their objectives because their objective is to rob obama of re-election, like that's what they said their objective is, the stated goal. maybe they haven't quite achieved that stated goal but in terms of what they're trying to do, they've gotten closer than the democrats for sure. the democrats have not been able to do anything because the republicans said that's their goal. it's hard to say staying in session any longer would improve things. this is a horrible meal. do you want seconds? there's one way to look at it, no way congress could get more unpopular. they'd have to spread diseases and kick babies to get more unpopular. i'm sure th
the united states versus jones case which includes ups tracking devices. i'm not sure anyone under the age of 40 with to that as new technology. by supreme court standards, they qualified. there is at least one case on the horizon that involves new technologies. it often involves all technologies. i thought i was let in at least one canine joke. this is the year the supreme court goes to the dogs. the court had no fewer than two cases in the application of the fourth amendment. these are both cases of oral argument on halloween. the court will have a fourth amendment day on halloween with these two cases including dogs nenest. the state of florida is the petitioner and both of the cases that the court will hear. of the two k nine cases, i think the case that is probably a greater interest is the case of florida versus jardine which is whether the dog can use a canine to sniff the outer up a callous. this is not in order to determine whether there is contraband in the house. it really involved the intersection of two basic fourth amendment principles. ordinarily does not constitute a search
of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people taking to the streets yesterday in the thousands demanding democracy, but more importantly, demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were behind that attack that took the lives of four americans. at night on friday, hundreds of these pro democracy demonstrators began taking situations into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia, and if you'll remember, the libyan government has said that it has detained individuals who are part of that group in association with the attack on the u.s. consulate although they say the group as a whole was not behind that assault. >> thank you so much for that reporting. meantime, president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton will be heading to new york next week for a meeting of the u.n. general assembly. the violence in the muslim world will likely be high on their talking points. they say the p
committee in the senate. >> they balanced their family budgets only to find out that the united states senate on the democratic control will not even bring a budget plan to the senate floor. people should know that the republican-led house, on the other hand, met its obligations. most significantly it passed a budget to rescue america from a debt crisis. >> this is an election year. you hear a lot of hyperbole. you can't find one sane economist that doesn't say if they don't do something about that fiscal cliff, the raising of the tax rates, cutting of government spending it will not lead to something close to an economic catastrophe not only here in washington and in the united states but worldwide. here's another bit of good news. they're going to come back after the elections, after november 6 in a lame duck session and try to do something about that. thomas? >> michael, we talk about this continuing resolution so it gets us into march of 2013. there's a potential it could go six months beyond that, correct? >> well, sure. i mean, they always like to give a new congress a couple of
mitt romney unwittingly declared himself unqualified to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than what he paid. since that was a political problem purely for show he deliberately overpaid the irs in order to inflate his tax rate on purpose. he explained that's why he was doing it. on the maddow blog today it was said mr. romney was in the extraordinary position of select ing his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pays. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. that's what the average millionaire in america ends up paying in taxes after all
in the united states states. it would be practically anywhere because the care of the child is the responsibility of the child's parent. in this case, the doctors treating baby m decided she was so sick that damage to her brain was so profound and permanent that there was no point taking extensive and invasive measures to prolong her life. the parents said that it was a matter of love. it was a matter of faith, as you mentioned, that the child should be kept alive. they went to court. they went to court in edmonton, alberta. to the supreme court of canada, and the court decided the child's interest was not in having her life artificially prolonged. the judges heard the case and decided against the parents. it is a strange case. all the stranger because the reason that baby was so sick was because of the parents themselves. >> and so these parents, 34 years old, they are charged with assault and negligence for failing to provide the necessities of life. might there be other charges that are going to be more severe that are down the line? >> that is what this case really turns
have a campaign tied with an incumbent president of the united states. >> he could be right or he could be incredibly disastrously wrong. make no mistake the 47% statements were a game changer. there is no longer any doubt what the two sides believe. the comments allowed president obama to go out on a message of inclusiveness, a message you'll hear a lot more about in the next 46 days. >> the values we believe in just don't belong to the workers, the 53%, the 47%, rich or poor or 99%. these are american values. they belong to all of us! >> now, compare those comments with mitt romney's final words on the hidden video from florida. >> one of the benefits is eating the world's best dessert, which i will. >> romney may have eaten the world's best dessert at that fund-raiser but on the campaign trail the only thing he can find right now is raw crow. what's is going to be like the next 46 days? how about this weekend? how is he going to begin to turn it around? the best thing he can do right now is call up tom cruise, the actor, and ask him about that thing he put together, i think a couple
condemnation has given a strong message that the united states government not only condemns it, but has absolutely no support for such blasphemous videos or content anywhere. i think that is an important message. i think that should go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world. >> brown: but in iran, at a military parade, president mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the u.s. and others of promoting strife under the guise of protecting civil liberties. >> ( translated ): they are seeking to trigger ethnic and religious conflicts. they chant fake slogans of freedom, and claim commitment to freedom of thought and freedom of speech. >> brown: and back in pakistan, prime minister raja pervez ashraf called for the world to outlaw blasphemy. >> we are demanding that the united nations and other international organizations seek a law that bans such hate speech aimed at fomenting hatred and sowing the seeds of discord through such falsehood. >> brown: in the meantime, pakistan shut down youtube access after the web site refused to remove the anti- islamic video. and in france, auth
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra
't need a turnaround. we have a campaign tied to the incumbent president of the united states. >> reporter: friday he released his 2011 tax return. the campaign admitted romney did not claim nearly $2 million in deductions which he was entitled to which tax experts say could have lowered his rate to less than 10%. the romney campaign said it allowed him to fulfill a pledge that he'd never paid less than 13% in the last ten years. the romneys donated more than $4 million to charity but deducted only a portion of that ensuring the 14% tax rate. now the focus shifts to october 3rd, the first of three presidential debates. ahead of the first debate paul ryan and mitt romney are hitting the road through ohio, a state they hope to win but a state where they are trailing the president at the moment. >> ron mott on the trail for us tonight in orlando. ron, thanks. we want to bring in cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. john, good evening. you heard mitt romney say he doesn't need a turnaround in the campaign. but aren't people suggesting that even in his party? >> reporter: absolut
to remember is that the united states went through a period where there was a sharp contraction through government. i am talking about the end of world war ii. since we have this. brief and cutbacks in government spending, the recession was painful but very brief and then we entered into a period of prolonged prosperity. we can't afford deep cutbacks and spending. we cannot afford very big increases by taxation. gerri: big increases by taxation. will that create another recession? there are lots of signs that we are going there already. >> that is true. we had indications of a worsening of business activity in europe and china. this is beginning to hurt u.s. exports. u.s. consumers and businesses, themselves, are shying away from major expenditures, especially business in terms of capital spending until fiscal cliff uncertainties are resolved. we are not going to resolve those uncertainties until we get the election out of the way. that is why these upcoming presidential debates and october will be of the utmost importance and they very much they have the power to move financial markets
on television and start telling us what he would do as president of the united states neil: what is he doing? he has more money. it started with all of this house a bill, did not spend it at the convention. the obama folks outspent 6-1. the argument was, resources and really get ready for the fall. but i am no expert. maybe that is a good strategy, but it is not proving that we now in the polls. what do you think? >> it is not proving that way because barack obama has in speaking about what barack obama watson to speak about. and that is where you lose. mitt romney has to talk about the issues that he wants to talk about. when you have unemployment going to the rich, more people on food stamps than ever before in this country and 30 embassies under siege, ambassadors being killed. who wants to talk about medicare? it gives you a headache. sector but the issues that concern all of america and what is going on in the world and what u.s. president are going to do to solve it. neil: 71 data that. i would talk about medicare. when you take a look at what's going on here, you do the math. these other
a jab at a florida rally. >> romney: the president of the united states said he can't change washington from the inside. isn't that amazing. no wonder why he has had such a hard time over the last four years. >> eliot: perhaps romney forgot he made an identical comment in 2008. >> i don't think you change washington from the inside. i think you change it from the outside. >> eliot: david axelrod put it best on the "today" show. >> the fact that romney picked up on it and attacked him on it shows he's cascading from one attack to another. >> eliot: the attacks are falling flat, listen to the response that paul ryan got from the aarp conference when he attacked the affordable care act act. >> the first step to a stronger medicare is to repeal obama-care. [ booing ] >> because it represents the worse of both worlds. i had a feeling there would be mixed reaction, so let me get into it. it weakens care for today's seniors and puts it at risk for the next generation. >> eliot: he brought his retired mother with him. don't do that to your mom. next time leave her at home rather than subject h
